Resumen

LESCANO RUIZ, Martín Alonso; SOLIS CARTA, Urbano  y  ROSERO MERA, Liliana Patricia. Severe joint complications in rheumatoid arthritis. Rev Cuba Reumatol [online]. 2019, vol.21, suppl.1, e67.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 1817-5996.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a widely distributed autoimmune disease that can present severe long-term damage. It is characterized by an inflammatory, autoimmune and systemic joint that usually affects small joints, therefore those that are most affected are the joints of the extremities, both the hands and the feet. These conditions cause different degrees of functional disability and decrease in the perception of the quality of life related to health. Early diagnosis and timely treatment prevent or at least slow down the appearance of deformities and functional impotence. We present a case of a female patient, young with severe bone sequelae on both feet.

Palabras clave : arthritis rheumatoid; autoimmunity; foot deformities; quality of life.
